governance project, which challenges philadelphia sovereignty. and then we'll move to action and look at the actual activities. fourth, will examine the significance of this conflict between constitutional government and global governance. sovereignty is defending the scholars scholars than most people as westphalian, embodied in the nation state is going the treaty of 1648 and that's true to an extent. when i was working on the book and thinking of coming up with concepts, i relist americans don't think of themselves as westphalian sovereignty. we the people of the united states of america. opening words of the constitution, written in philadelphia, hence philadelphia sovereignty. but what is philadelphia sovereignty, the people are sovereign, the three constitution and the core of the twin pillars of our liberty and consent. so we do have majority rule, but majority rule is limited reconstitution and the whole system of separation of powers, federalism and limited government. a lot of times people get hung up in the republic or democracy. wary compound machine, a regime that is both

in the 1.0 world. it was a company that created technology to connect citizens better with government * . i ran it for almost nine years. and when i was elected to office four years ago, i was unfortunately more surprised than i wanted to be about how far behind san francisco government was. this was very 2008, 2009. with you i'm really proud of the leaps and bounds we have taken as a city * . i was proud in 2010 to help move forward legislation to really bring together city departments to work in a coordinated way with our committee on information technology. to help create a chief information officer position for the city. i was also proud to work with then mayor newsome in passing the first generation of open data legislation that we have. but as our civil grand jury in june pointed out, our i-t in san francisco is still in need of a culture shock. and this is where all of us come in today. we have 200 data sets that have already been put out there, but by and large the data sets put out by city government are data sets that i think show us in a very positive way. from my perspective, it
devore author of the texas model saying that texas governs better. matt welch also moved from california by your magazine is still based their? why is reason magazine in the horrible state? >> that is where we have spent since 1971 and it gets us outside of the beltway thinking but it is a challenge to be there. and you are right it is a new thing in california will space retract immigrants. john: but the movie industry and stuff is happening. >> california has silicon valley, hollywood, a biotech but you cannot live off that narrow band of industry forever. because of high taxes, regulation, and healthy lawsuits, government spending people are leaving. john: great davis in the '90s said we have all of this cash from the.com boom. >> he spent that cash on public sector pension promises and general spending to everybody even austerity spending has gone up. john: beyond population growth. global warning -- warming measure. >> high-speed rail that nobody wants. john: even "the terminator" the republican and i thought here is a politician quoting milton friedman. what happened? >> he enacted
assume that the national government must at all costs remain support of the four slave states within the union. those in light blue. so called loyal border states, delaware, missouri, maryland and especially kentucky top do that, he believed, the republicans must not an antagonize those states politically powerful slave holders. antagonize them by interfering with slavery in the succeeding states at least not interfering with them anymore than necessary. lincoln was sure that if he did otherwise the slave holders would pick up and leave as well. second lincoln assumes that only a small minority in the succeeding states really support succession. he and other republicans believe that the great majority of white southerners in the confederacy. slave holders and nonslave holders alike. loyal abiding citizens who had been tricked in to suck us is suggestion by a minority of extremists. leaving slavery alone would hopefully, win them back in to the union. that is the expectations. but after a full year of war, and despite lincoln's efforts to spare their property and feelings, precious fe
the jeeps destroyed by government forces filled with suspected attackers as they tried to flee with hostages. images released as they announced the four-day long crisis was finally over. on saturday, army helicopters swooped as the remaining captives were cornered by algerians special forces. workers from britain, the u.s., japan, and norway are among those still unaccounted for. this is a four stocks are still missing. >> tragically, we have a great fear is that we may have fatalities from this group. we're working very closely with the families, providing them with information, counselling, and other needs. >> they had offered to release hostages in return for the freedom of his longest prisoners, but it seems the government never intended to negotiate. -- they offered to release hostages in return a four islamist prisoners. >> we heard the japanese man shouting in english. we also heard the seven shooting. the next day we went back and we found their dead bodies. >> the decision to raided the complex alone and it angered some government. >> hostages have died. if we needed a justification
stronghold. british children learn about forced marriage as the british government or as to ban the practice. barack obama has officially begun his second term. they're putting the issue touches to a more elaborate inauguration on monday. he's the 17th u.s. president to serve a second term in office. he took the oath of office a small ceremony earlier. >> i greater thanbarack hussein obama do solemnly swear that i will faithfully execute the office of the united states and will to the best of my ability preserve, protect, and defend the constitution of the united states. >> our white house correspondent takes a look ahead at what lies in store for the president the next four years. >> the first time president barack obama took the oath of office -- he did it in front of the biggest crowd washington d.c. has seen it all of its history. almost 2 billion people here to hear him make the promises. >> on this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dog was that for far too long have struggled our politics. >> things did not help
% of americans calling government spending out of control. so, what do some democratic lawmakers want to do? get rid of the nation's debt limits. they say it's keeping the economy down. but won't getting rid of it just push the economy down even more? hi, everyone, i'm brenda buttner, this is bulls and bears and let's get right to it. the bulls and bears this week, gary b smith, jonas max ferris and along with todd schoenburger. >> gary get rid of the debt ceiling best or worst thing for the economy? >> it's absolutely the worst thing, brenda. the left likes to say, well, you know, ronald reagan raised the debt limit 18 times, george bush raised it 7 times, bill clinton raised it 8 times. so, you know, both sides do it so it must be okay, and from the perspective of fair and balanced, it has to stop no matter who is president. we go through the same cycle, we raise the debt limit, spend more,en gout and borrow more, and raise the debt limit again and it looks like it's unstoppable, but this is the check and balance of how to govern our society. we can't afford the bills we have now to pay. someo
is to increase the size of government. but nevertheless, they were second strings, if you will. hayek, contemporary of chambers and russell kirk as well, we were represented the other two strands of it. but until the '70s probably, communism was the dominant thing. something i have wondered about was when ronald reagan was elected, whether as you look at the history of the conservative movement, anti-communism became much less of a deal. and i wonder if with ronald reagan the people who were anti-communist don't deny this anti-communist in charge who was the commander in chief and they felt comfortable enough leading anti-communism so they did need to put the same amount of emphasis into it that they had and focused on other things. anyway, so let's turn for a few minutes to where the movement is today after at the communism. and, of course, we've had what, 20, 25 years since communism to figure out where the conservative movement goes. but there are certainly, i think some things that are different but a great many things are the same to basically the tenets of conservatism are the s
is happening to our government. it is gone crazy with regulation and restriction, but the part that is most alarmming is the amount of money that we are print one day will explode. we can't continue to print money. we have fancy names for it. it is quantitative easing and it is really printing money. wrim bay way has a trillion dollar note and you buy a loaf of bread everybody is happily singing . we will pick up the bill for the health care. new taxes kicked n and they went to the bar and restaurant had a great time and now they will get a check for the so-called health care. >> that is good bread for a trillion dollars. we will ask the congressman worked with bill clinton a democrat and now working with barack obama a democrat. go to my website mikehuckabee.com. tell me what you think on the leaf feed back . sign up for my facebook and follow me on twitter. you >> we are back with the congressman. matt, back to you. you served with bill clinton 20 years and now with barack obama; tell me the difference. >> governor, i sat through a government shut down with president clinton and impeachme
the government be in the sports business? >> the debate heating up as lang armstrong scandal comes down. the postoffice paid 30 million to sponsor the team. you say the buck stops here. >> well, it is insane. can you imagine? taxpayers paying into the federal government that is sponsoring sports teams. give me a break. this is a dumbest thing i ever heard . it is outrageous and the federal government is out of control and spending money on things like that. we have in certain places where arms of the federal government are going in and lobbying the congress and spending more tax money. this is crazy and the thing about lance armstrong and where they paid 30 million. get them out of the business. >> and by the way, the inspector general said they may be out of business unless it is a bail out and it is a mess and they are paying for sports team. >> look at the 70s 80s 90s and how it is cleaned up leading by the national football league and now all major sports organization are clning up their own system. the group that is not is prescriptional boxes and the reason for that. the governmen
government falling, meaning a security force that's unable to secure the country. >> i think back to i re-read barbara tuckman's book. at one point a british leader asked a french leader how many troops they needed early in the war and the french leader said just one and i'll make sure he gets killed. the point he was making was commitment. i think it's less about how many american forces are there. it's actually even not important how many american dollars or technology is there. there's this intangible commitment, the idea that we are reliable. i like to describe it almost as a line of credit that a business has. they really don't want to draw on it, but having it knows that they can maintain the solvency of the business. the afghans are terrified right now. >> if we lose afghanistan, what do we really lose? people have made the point time and time again al qaeda as a threat is no longer in country, the taliban itself could be part of the government and as much as the united states may hate that, the united states forces were not there just to protect women and we'll leave even if women
of a government shututdown -- we looked at what the legislate season meansns for new priorities in marylaland and virginia. we have three spspeciaguests. joining us today, , annie lowrey, bruce depuyt, and peter morici. wewelcome to youou all. bruc want to start with yoyou. you headed to annapolis. all the othther reporters waited in line as you i introduced -- interviewed vernor o'maey. we want t to hear a little bit about that ininterview. things that he had to say about the economy. what was your overall take o the interview with governor o'o'malley? >> he is trying to have it both ways. hehe is trying to raise his national profile in a number of ways, but he i is also tryiying to do it in n a way that makes it clear that his main focus is governing the state of maryland. >> e economics back a sarah palin? -- you do not expect a sarah palin? >> he is going t to remn chief execute of the state of maryland for the remainder o of his s term there is relief that the worst of the pain and the state of maryland seems to be over. he can pivot past that. he can focus on the death penalty aeal. --
their individual wealth and privileges to cooperate fully with the confederate government struggling to protect the interests of slave owners as a whole. and those are aspects of the book that i'm discussing with you today. but this evening i'd like to talk to you about the most important fissure that ran through the house of dixie, slavery, and the three ways slavery figured in the origin and the progress of the o civil war. first of all, the war's central cause. secondly, as a crucial source of military power deployed during that war. and, third, slavery's erosion during the war and its destruction both of those things as an eventual union goal. the destruction of slavery as an eventual conscious, deliberate union goal. so let's start with cause. as you may know, in a recent national survey half of all those people, half of all those americans when were polled deny that slavery was the main cause of the u.s. civil war. and that view is apparently gaining ground, not losing ground. because among younger people polled, those below 30 years of age, fully three out of five denied slavery's centra
of an internet activist finds his family crying foul. was aaron schwartz a victim of government intimidation and a run away prosecutor. >> while there's no law or set of laws that can prevent every sinceless act of violence completely, no piece of legislation that will prevent he every tragedy, every act of evil, if there's even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there's even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try it. >> paul: welcome to the journal editorial report, i'm paul gigot, that was president obama rolling out the plan to curb gun violence and the president outlined 23 executive actions, including more steps to make more federal data available from background checks and increased access to mental health services and he called on congress to reinstate the federal assault weapons ban and prohibit high capacity gun magazines that can hold more than ten rounds. so, what's likely to get passed and what difference will it make? let's ask wall street journal columnist and political he editor and washington columnist kim strassel. >> has a hypothetical,
times. but i also see so much potential, so many amazing people, and we in city government have an opportunity to address so many problems and make so many things better. the campaign was a learning experience on so many levels. beyond that, i think you've learned something about yourself when you are putting yourself out there through the political process. i was very lucky that i had that opportunity because where i come from something as basic as free, democratic elections, that is a luxury. people participate in the democratic process. that is something that is quite amazing and remarkable. i think that you do not fully appreciate it if you have had it all your life. whereas someone who came from a place where that was not possible, i think that i have a unique appreciation for it. it was really an exciting thing to do. >> where would you place yourself now on the political spectrum? the left, the right? supervisor campos: i think the labels can mean a lot of different things. i see myself as someone who ultimately has tried to make things better for people. i have a progres
. >> the american government now warning of more kidnapping threats on westerners and conor powell has our coverage from the middle east bureau in jerusalem. what is the latest today? >> the fighting may be over but there is a lot of question hes and concerns and also confusion about what exactly happened and what is going on and who is alive and who is dead. now, according to algerian officials they are in the bp gas plant and searching for are mines and booby traps that they believe have been laid by the islamic militants. they also are finding bodies, dozens of bodies. according to an algerian television station they are finding dozens of bodies but they are so badly damaged they can't tell if they are members of the terrorist cell that took over the facility or if they are foreign hostages. the algerian government is saying that all 32 militants were killed on the final raid by algerian forces but they also say the death toll s at 23. it could be 25. and it likely will increase over the next couple days as they begin to figure out who was killed and who was not. now, also the details are very,
a bipartisan majority in the house. that is a governing majority. he's going to have it on immigration and also on the debt ceiling. not sure he's going to have it on guns, but he's going to drive the really hard-line republicans crazy because he's going to be able to break off 40 or 50 of them for all these other things. chris: that seems to be true as much as the opposition is hotter and perhaps hardening out there on the right. it does seem that the center right and the center are in play and obama is making his move toward them successfully. >> their governing philosophy coming in is that the fever would break among the tea party folks, among the hard right, and also that just folks in the house would sort of move to the boehner philosophy, which is a governing philosophy. the sort of -- chris: in other words, you don't need a majority of the republicans to rule. >> you break the rule, which is what he's done on these big-ticket items. they have been meeting over these last couple of days to figure out wait forward. i think the president was smart to step into these debates early and often
. they are the branch of government to preserve this form of government. there is something very reassuring about this notion that every four years, whether it is your candidate or your opponent, they will be gone after a certain length of time, and that is the celebration of the in and out of the presidency that makes it so important. we can date our collection to these brass buttons that were made for george washington's first inauguration in new york city. they are a simple brass disk, often with the letters g w on them, and you could pin it to your close or sell it on. it demonstrates the relationship between the presidency and the citizenry, which is really the key, and really when inaugurations are part of. there are these wonderful smash- ups -- part coronation, part celebration of american democracy. that relationship is really key. they are also celebrations of national unity, and there is a little bit of partisan gloating. one of our great treasures is this flag from thomas jefferson's first inauguration in 1800. you can see, looking at this banner, what it says -- the eagle holds these
massacres like we have had, not just new town. and justice scalia's opinion said that the government is free to regulate the kinds of weapons that people carry. >> if your therapist things that you are a threat to someone, should he or she be able to turn you in? in new york state, yes. >> not that you needed a quick computer system to figure out the solution, it was common sense. mentally ill people should not have access to guns. criminals should not have access to guns. >> common sense that we will see how easy it is to enforce. andrew cuomo signed the toughest law in the nation dealing with guns. shooters at virginia tech and aurora, colorado had receive mental health counseling. under new law, they would have to report that information to a mental health director. that person would have to go to the state criminal justice establishment, which could then go after the fire arms. critics say this nullifies the doctor-patient relationship. we have a board certified psychiatrist here. what do you think about this law? >> nothing new here. in just but every state of the union, ia patient tell
't really want the al qaeda affiliate to establish its roots there. the government is weak. it's not a democratic government. and so defense secretary leon panetta has said that the u.s. government is willing to assist the french with logistics and intelligence. the drones you mentioned are not -- they would not be armed drones. they would be intelligence gathering drones but the french have taken the lead on n. i think so far the u.s. is standing on the side lienls pretty much -- sidelines pretty much cheering them on because it's an important mission. >> we've sent 55,000 americans there according to-- >> 50 million? >> what is it? 550 americans and they are there not as soldiers but there to help with equipment and so forth. >> this is an area, northern mali is an area the size of texas. and you've got-- >> twice the size of texas. >> you have al qaeda in there and the french with 500 troops. they're not going to recapture that place. they're going to use air power. the french are getting themselves into something. if they go there and try to take that back, they'll be in an
appeared to shut down the government to make a point. they may need to shut dowjust to get out of the system. we may need to do that for member-management purposes so that they can show their constituents they are fighting. get it out of the system kept? this is not a gastrointestinal system. thiss the government. >> i would offer therapy and not closing the government. the republicans have had a pretty unhappy experience with brinksmanship. twice in the gingrich years shut down the government, and they got shellacked. they tried to force the issue using the debt ceiling in 2011, the fiscal cliff in january. i was as gung-ho as any of them to force obama into cutting spending. the government spendinis spendiding us into penury. but it faed because you cannot govern froone house of t congress. that is the truth. i wrote a column this morning ying essentially you have to recognize you cannot use these things because, in the end, you will be humiliated. ratings will be low, d you will not get the spending ts anyways. i think that adds some realism. certainly, i do not think the r
to bring government to a grinding halt. a couple people and congress can do it from a president can do it who appeared a few people on the supreme court can do it. it's much easier to keep things from happening and make things happen. what drives compromise is the need to do something, they need to move forward and i think roh is going to have a lot of political theater. i come at this as an english major with a background in theater. so i love the theatrical elements of our politics. i think it's fascinating. it's dramatic, comic, tragic. it's a wonderful bit of literature. in the end, the founding generation had a country to create and they were going to give up almost everything but that. we've got problems to solve and i note in the book and believe right now the national debt is probably her generation's problem to solve and it's a big problem and one where there's a whole lot of different values on the line, different interest on the line. i believe we will compromise is we have to because the alternative is just grinding to a halt. but there's always every compromise in the cons
involving in libya, there has been a lack of government control and a huge swath of the region. an explosion of uncontrolled weapons and to some of these groups, we see this in algeria and it should be seen by one campaign from the french fighting to what is going on in algeria. we have had many laws of unintended consequences and the middle east. think of the effort to get the soviets out of afghanistan and what it led to. this is a characteristic of the region, not a characteristic of bad politics. it was good to get rid of gaddafi and the soviets. from the pakistan border to the atlantic ocean, you will have something like this, get ready >> are they the same it. ideologically as al qaeda in iraq? >> there are experts that can talk about that. by and large what they represent is extreme for the political islamic theological movements including using violence with anybody that disagree with them. that is what is in common for all of these organizations. calling them al qaeda is loose association. a few years earlier, they invited the city terrorists in iraq to join them as well. so you get
that we've had is that the western government that had citizens in algeria, they weren't given much information on what was going on the ground. many countries weren't given a heads-up that a raid was being launched. this type of information we're getting right now really is not helping the families who don't know about their loved ones. over the course of next 48 hours we hope it will get better but it appears algeria isn't prepared or able to provide the type of information that loved ones and western governments really need to sort this out. >> gregg: coner, thanks very much. >> heather: next-door in mali go a setback to terrorists linked to al-qaeda now retreating after days of french air strikes. the military in mali says they are complete control there. streets reportedly a landscape of burned out vehicles and destroyed weapons. a spokesman for the french forces is sounding a more cautious note saying it's not clear all the militants have left. french forces are moving northward into rebel held territory. >> gregg: more turmoil in the region. new violence erupting in egypt. pr
to washington, d.c. he was committed to govern the country, not just the one that demanded change. he wanted to work with the democrats and republicans to bring change to reality. he did a pretty good job of it. very first meeting that george w. bush had at the white house with people outside were leaders of the democratic party. he brought in some of the gray beards of the democratic party and how he work as governor and how he wanted to do the same thing as president of united states. it was hard but wasn't easy and i'll never forget how hard we worked to get the first tax cut that provided economic stimulus for the country. we need that kind of work today. >> eric: do you think he'll sit down with mr. boehner for lunch, do you think he'll take that page from that? >> the lunch is a celebration of our democracy and constitution. he'll have all branches of government there. it will be very polite. i think they will not be heavy discussions around some of the challenges that president faces and congress has to deal with. so i'm not expecting a lot of real work to be done at that lunch to cel
to foreign companies. does that make any sense you? >> this is what happens when the government tries to get in a situation of picking winners and losers. it doesn't even do that very well. they're trying to reward the american companies. oh, here is a subsidy for installing windmills or installing solar panels. guess what, a good chance they are going to be made overseas. a good chance that a lot of these subsidies are going to go before companies. and this is been true in many government programs, not just obama's stimulus, but obama through the stimulus really ramped up the degree of the government handing out money to green energy. gerri: france, spain, japan, italy, you name it, are cut money when all over the planet. here's the thing that is really frustrating. permanent and temporary jobs created, just a thousand. the average cost, $1 million if you do the math. none of this makes sense. our taxpayer dollars are being wasted yet again. gerri: and the fact is that the people making money off of this often are the people, the lobbyists to live -- line up the subsidies and make sure that
is that this government has negotiated with terrorists. our government has been engaged in talks with the taliban and afghanistan since early 2009. the same group that has been a safe haven in the immediate aftermath of september 11th. documents found in the abbottabad compound the lion was killed proving a close working relationship between the two. the same group that is also responsible for a large portion of the 2200 american soldiers killed in afghanistan since 2001. not to menion the palestinian liberation organization the designation changed after we helped negotiate the deal. meanwhile, secretary of state hillary clinton chose her words carefully, while suggesting that the algerian government could use a hand in the battle in that region. >> it is absolutely essential that we broaden and deepen our counter-terrorism cooperation going forward with algeria and all countries of the region. i make clear to the prime minister that we stand ready to further enhance the counter-terrorism support that we already provide. lou: the situation on the ground in algeria is changing by seemingly the mom
us for so long no longer apply. the question we have today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works, whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified. whether the answer is yes, we intend to move forward. where the answer is no, programs will end. and those of us who manage the public's dollars will be held to account to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government. nor is the question before us whether the market is a force for good or ill. its power to generate wealth and expand freedom is unmatched, but this crisis has reminded us that without a watchful eye, the market can spin out of control. a nation cannot prosper long when it favors only the prosperous. the success our economy has always depended not just on the size of our gdp, but on the reach of our prosperity, on our ability to extend opportunity to every willing heart not out of charity, but because it is the surest
they'll blame and fault. it's a heinous act and i think we'll talk to the algerian government in the days to come to understand what fully, exactly happened here. >> chris: any second thoughts about the way the algerians handled this? there's a lot of -- not only militant but hostages who were killed. >> well, listen, i think we will obviously be in contact with them about this but the focus needs to be on the terrorists and, a reminder, all across the globe, countries are threat ended by terrorists, who will use civilians, to try and advance their twisted and sick agenda. and i think that that is why this really is an -- will require an international response. and that is why we are so focused on -- with our counterterrorism partners around the globe, northern africa and middle east and elsewhere, working with -- sharing intelligence and technology, expertise, so they can do a good job of destroying the networks before events like this happen. >> chris: let me ask you about that: during the campaign, president obama often talked about al qaeda, as a spent force. but, just thi
of government and those that befit from the government the woman who has a job thanks to the auto rescue. the dad's whose family is protecting thanks to the health care law. i think you get the point. austerity isn't the point. more government is. this inaugural weekend is all about a blueprint for revving it up. the white house says it is low-keying the inaugural festivities because of economy, somehow cutting yourself down to two presidential balls doesn't exactly strike me as sacrifice, as much as a slap in the taxpayer's face. to joe perry, marco and chris. not exactly partying. more like watching and worrying. what do you make of what is going on, joe? >> really what has happened is the administration has brought back the specter of uncertainty. we're in the trenches. we're lending money. banks like gold coast really look to help small businesses out, help them realize their dreams. help them have their businesses grow and what the administration has done with the tax hikes that will affect these small businesses, they have essentially --. neil: have you seen that? >> put a damper,
